This morning, after a round of muscle relaxers, I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I can spend a few minutes at the computer, followed by a few more minutes stretched out on the couch watching movies.
How did I put my back out? It started on Wednesday morning. We went to see the Tall Ships, just a few blocks away from us on the Port Hawkesbury waterfront. We were having a rainy day, the first rain in a long time, and well needed, so it didn't deter us. Walking down the hill, it was still quite a sight!
We had a wonderful time touring the ships. Even the Bounty was in port!
And several Jack Sparrows lounging around...
This ship was named The Peacemaker
All I could think was that they misspelled the name...it should have read "The Piecemaker"!
And then it happened. We were at the refreshment stand ordering my summer treat of a hot dog and a pop and a plastic fence fell down right in front of me. I immediately leaned over to help pick it up...wrong thing to do, wrong way to lean...ouch, ouch, ouch...
So, bad timing. The Think Christmas blog hop starts on Monday (see the schedule on my sidebar...it is going to be an awesome 7 days of Christmas blocks, tutorials, and giveaways.) I was going to make another block, but my little ole back has told me to stop. And I'm OK with that. Really I am. I will get ready for Think Christmas in my own way. I just poured myself a coffee in a Christmas mug, pulled out some Christmas editions of my favorite magazine from years gone past, and I will just Think Christmas.
And because I can't seem to stop doing things with my hands, even with a sore back, I will continue to make these little hexies.
These are very tiny. I am making them in preparation for Kathleen Tracy's small quilt of the month project. Kathleen gave us some information on how to make them right here. I want to have all my hexies made for the October quilt. I hope I can do it. I also found the cutest video made by Susan at Homespun Quilts. I literally googled "how to make hexies" and she popped up. It's a great little tutorial!
So, that's my story and I'm sticking to it. My time limit on the computer has expired, this back of mine needs a rest, so I am off to the couch. Thank goodness for my little iPad to check emails...I can do that in a reclining position.
It's a great day for
